Travel companion

There are three types of travelling I’ve done so far.

1. Solo

2. Group

3. Duo

The solo travelling wanders through your fears, basic ideologies, thought process and other psychological elements. The fun part becomes a secondary object and you travel within yourself.

The traveller understands the situations better and the ideas that pop up in the head are the ones called experience. The responsibilities are solely on you and you need to be cautious and attentive.

Whereas when you travel in a group, fun is your priority. You are drawn towards the things you’d never do when you are alone. you do things for the sake of pure fun.

Let’s see it this way- you aren’t a selfie queen/king (most of the travellers aren’t anyway) but when you are travelling in a group, you might end up with 100 and above selfies (otherwise known as groupfies). Your individual choices are kept aside automatically and social nature pops out. The group travelling is beneficial in so many ways yet just like yin and yang there are disadvantages of it too.

Talking about the advantage of group travelling, the obvious first one is that the responsibilities are less than what they were when you were travelling alone. The whole group shares the responsibilities and the task undone can be performed by anyone else, in case of inability.

The disadvantage- you cannot explore everything you want to as you would have done, when alone. The quietly standing shop at the back of the mall that you wanted to explore, you missed it because the group wanted to be at the museum at 11. Or the place you were excited about and read a lot on internet was not on the group’s list.

And now talking about the duo travelling. It’s a trip where you have a fellow traveller with you. He can be a stranger, a friend or family.

The basic characteristics are that you start contradicting your ideas, reminiscing about them. There are talks, we don’t talk exactly about intellectual stuff but about how we see the world. The conversations are float and simple in nature. Your thoughts somehow match and you’re relaxed. A good fellow makes the songs dull and scenes more alive. The extract, there is always an extract to these travels. It takes you through your life.

These extracts remain for your lifetime. They are the result of intense conversations where you are talking about just travelling. You see people not just with your perspective, but also from another perspective where you know you are comfortable.

A friend of mine and I extracted three important things from our recent trip to Chitrakoot(Uttar Pradesh,India).

There are three most biggest and important things in everybody’s lives, however much they are ignorant of it.

1. Happiness

2. Dreams

3. Hobby
